    This clip's current date of 1935 must be incorrect - the vehicle seen in the footage is a Bedford QL fire engine, machinery that didn't enter service until March 1941.

    Indeed, given that the footage location is given as "Germany", we can probably assume that the footage must originate from 1945, after the Allied invasion.
